Details of the incident : Pelican lens case was the last of seven cases of equipment to arrive on baggage claim from direct BOS-MIA flight and was claimed just after it arrived on the carousel. The zip ties I used to seal the case at check-in in BOS had been replaced with two new zip ties. The case was noticably lighter than usual when I retrieved it from baggage carousel and I opened it to find three of my lenses were missing. There was no paper TSA insert in the case indicating it had been opened and inspected.
